Dear Snowman- Katherine White and Alison Edgson

The Blurb
Little Rabbit and Snowman are the very best of friends. But when winter fades, Snowman is nowhere to be found. Wherever can he be? Soon a postcard arrives for Little Rabbit. It's from Snowman - and he's travelling the world! This brilliant book about an adventurous snowman has a gorgeous shiny cover and comes with six postcards and masses of stickers, so little readers can send messages to their family and friends just like Snowman. Children will love the excitement of reading Snowman's postcards and letters and finding out where in the world he has been. This lovely book would make a fantastic Christmas present but is sure to be enjoyed throughout the year.
The Review
I really enjoyed this picturebook.  The tale is original and comforting, and the postcards from Snowman are such a sweet idea!  The story itself is fun and charming, a reassuring book perfect for pre-schoolers. It taps into the excitement that children have about receiving post of their own and is a wintery book that could also be enjoyed throughout the year.
The bold illustrations will capture children's imagination and the additional postcards and stickers are a bonus feature which may add appeal for reluctant readers.  I fell in love with the snowman-he is so cute!
This would definitely make a great gift as Dear Snowman is a high quality book.  It is a sturdy hardback designed to be enjoyed again and again.
Dear Snowman is out now.
I was given a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
